Mk.V wheel colour

Recommended Posts

Can't find the colour for the wheels of the female Mk.V tank. Toying with the idea of doing one that has shed one of it's tracks. I know they would most likely have been covered with dried mud but would also have shown a bit of colour. Also would the crew have gained access to the inside by the doors under the sponsons?

 

TIA

The wheel color was most likely the same as the body color, or failing that, battleship grey (which is what I believe was the color they were painted from the factory). And yes, the crew hatch on a female tank was under the sponson. On a male tank, it was on the rear face of the sponson.

Cheers for the answer. Will probably go with Battleship grey.
